WHAT IS THE WINTER SCHOOL ABOUT?


The Winter School on Federalism and Governance is a two-week international postgraduate programme on federalism, regionalism and multilevel governance. It provides participants the opportunity to broaden their knowledge especially from the perspectives of legal and political science. Participants will study federalism and its challenges in lectures and workshops led by renowned experts within an international learning environment that features top-notch scholars coming from different continents around the globe. The programme explores, from a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective, how federalism can contribute to a multilevel, integrated and pluralistic decision-making.

The 2015 edition of the Winter School focuses on the link between federalism and democratic participation. In many countries, trust in traditional mechanisms of democracy is on the decline and discussion about how to improve democratic structures through greater citizen participation is increasing The 2015 Winter School explores, from a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective, how federalism can contribute to a multilevel, integrated and pluralistic decision-making. The two-week programme will analyse the methods, instruments and forms of democratic participation in multilayered systems and will present important case studies from various countries, for example, Switzerland or Canada, as well as the Council of Europe and the European Union.
